Gem limit still there after the meganerf?

I recall when the multi-kb tribute gem gain got trimmed from 5x to 1x the devs said it is not at least linear, no limit.

I recently had a 5-kingdom tribute and got 4 gems, not 5. So what is the actual formula then?

gems = (number of tributes - 1)

There is no limit on it now from what I am aware of.

Ah, then my bad, for some reason I though it is equal to tributes without the -1 part,

i did not even know about the gem limit or lack thereof. This is decent info i should of thought about researching sooner. Thanks op

and the formula for keys is gems x 2.

This used to, of course, be very different back in 1.07
